P&P Live! Mary Jordan & Kevin Sullivan – Trump on Trial: The Investigation, Impeachment, Acquittal and Aftermath

Upcoming Event
Thursday, October 22, 2020 - 5:00pm

In the spring of 2019, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi did not favor pursuing Trump's impeachment. Her view was: "He's just not worth it." But by September, after a whistleblower complaint suggesting that Trump had used his office for his political benefit, Pelosi decided to risk it. The impeachment inquiry led to charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, a gamble that ultimately meant Trump would be the first impeached president on the ballot in US history.

Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post reporters Kevin Sullivan and Mary Jordan have crafted a powerful, intimate narrative that concentrates on the characters as well as the dramatic events, braiding them together to provide a remarkable understanding of what happened and why-- Drawing on the deep reporting of Post journalists as well as new interviews, Sullivan and Jordan deliver a crisp page-turner with exquisite detail and scenes, deftly illuminating the aims and calculations of key figures, such as Pelosi's evolution from no to yes and Trump's mounting fury as "the I-word" became inevitable.

Kevin Sullivan and Mary Jordan are a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporters for The Washington Post and a bestselling authors. The last book Sullivan and Jordan wrote was the #1 New York Times bestseller, Hope: A Memoir of Survival in Cleveland, the story of Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus, who were kidnapped in Cleveland and held for a decade. They previously wrote The Prison Angel: Mother Antonia's Journey from Beverly Hills to a Life of Service in a Mexican Jail. They were the Washington Post's co-bureau chiefs in Tokyo, Mexico City, and London for fourteen years.
